Hi, can you please advise what is the percentage of Olympic champions using short pimples? Do the majority of them use spin rubbers?

What are the advantages & disadvantages of a light or heavy blade? Thank you

Hi Frank,

Some of the female players use short pimples but none of the males.

As far as blades, it is a matter of what feels better for you.  The lighter bat is easier to manoeuvre and swing through, the heavier bat will add more speed once you get it moving faster.

I prefer the lighter bat to be able to do more with it as far as strokes and being able to change direction with it easier.
